10 days away!

It feels like we are in the final countdown now! I can’t believe we have made it this far, it’s such a blessing.

So much to do, so little time yet it feels like these last 10 days are DRAGGING. I admit I am still waiting for something bad to happen. I freak out when I wake up and he’s not moving. I know I need to eat breakfast and such, but the anxiety is overwhelming. I will be so happy when he arrives safely! And don’t even get me started about how nervous I am for my c-section. I didn’t have time to be scared last time, it happened so quickly. But this time I have the fear of something bad happening, the placenta not being in an ideal position but better than expected and my old incision being vertical. As my OB said, nothing is definite until she gets in there. It’s just scary thinking about it, but I have faith we will all be okay.

Tomorrow is my last ultrasound with Vicki and it feels like I am graduating. I have seen her every 2 weeks plus some extras that were here and there so it’s weird saying tomorrow is my last scan with her. I can’t wait to see how big this lil guy is!! Then I have my pre-op paperwork afterwards and an OB appointment…. AHHH it’s so real!!!!

It’s getting so close! I just can’t believe it!

I can't believe you have made it this far! I mean, I'm so so glad but when my doctors talk about me making it to 36 wks and whether we should do an amnio or not, I laugh at them, considering I only made it 23 wks the first time! You have given me a lot of hope that this will be a take home baby for us too.
I hope you have a great ultrasound and appointments and a lovely 10 days!

I'm so excited for you. I remember it being surreal when I got to my last appointments. I'm sure you're in the very best hands for your c-section. So looking forward to reading the good news - I have tears in my eyes just thinking about it for you.

Ashley, you've waited so long fopr this...although the anxiety is probably at an all time high--you're almost there! 9 more sleeps and you will meet your lil one. I have enjoyed following your story and hope you continue to blog once CC is here.
